Pittsburgh Bus Accidents Attorney
Bus accidents often result in serious personal injuries or death. The causes of bus crashes can range from driver negligence, inadequate security, dangerous roadways, weather conditions, negligent hiring, negligent training, defective products, and improper maintenance.
Some buses are owned and operated by government entities and others are owned and operated by private companies. Claims for damages against a public entity or governmental entity are complex and have strict time limitations. In Pennsylvania, that time frame may be as little as six (6) months. The laws are complex and vary greatly depending upon the circumstances surrounding the accident. If you have been injured as the result of a bus accident in Pennsylvania, either as a passenger of the bus, pedestrian, or driver or passenger of another vehicle involved in the accident, you may be able to pursue legal action against the bus company to recover your damages.
If you were a passenger on a bus that was involved in an accident, the bus company, whether public or private, owes you a
duty of care associated with being a common carrier. If you or a loved one has been injured in a bus accident, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, property damage and car repairs, lost wages, pain and suffering, impairment, permanent injury, and disfigurement.
